Friends With Benefits Part 4
I LIIIIIIIVE *in Mushu voice*
I know I’ve disappeared over the last few weeks and I’m so sorry, I don’t even have an excuse, I was just lazy, but here’s Chapter Fourrrrr
Alex was at a loss as to what the hell was going on in her life.
For starters, she slept with a colleague.
Now given that Bucky Barnes was no ordinary type of guy she could somewhat comprehend why she had slept with him. Besides, guy was easy on the eyes. So, in short, that made sense even if she was somewhat unhappy with that.
At 6:42am Alex was awoken by her phone being bombarded with text messages, from her ex no less.
That she had no idea what to make of. Kyle was never a particularly serious one, there was a maybe we can start dating but there wasn’t much else.
Then she got the call.
Her friend Katie Nichols whom she spent the better part of 20 years being soul mated to (yes soul mated was a term Alex considered to be legitimate) called her saying how she spotted her cousin in the city. Alex’s cousin, Kiera Clemmens was not her favourite person in the world. She was very much what Alex’s mother stood for, poise and cold exterior and not having so much as a single hair out of place, they loved to go to church (something Alex hated), were very old fashioned (they didn’t believe in being gay which angered Alex to unbelievable proportions) and pretty much stomped on the face of feminism. The Suffragette’s did not endure such horrible treatment so dumb bitches like her could exist.
And to top the whole thing off, they, the Avengers, were out of coco pops. This was probably the most upsetting thing to happen to Alex within the last 24 hours. It was Thursday morning. Alex liked having coco pops on a Thursday morning. Coco Pops with a glass of milk and a breakfast muffin. Now all she’d get is the milk and breakfast muffin. Staring blankly at the closed fridge she didn’t notice Steve walk into the kitchen before abruptly stopping upon seeing her look of horror.
“Everything okay Alex?” he asked her.
She stood silent for a moment before the explosion began.
“We are the Avengers, are we not?” she burst.
“Yes?” Steve answered slightly perplexed.
“Then why is it, that the Avengers, are out of bloody coco pops!” she burst again.
With a slight chuckle, he walked up to her before putting a comforting hand on her shoulder, I’m sure we’ll get more coco pops by next Thursday” he said with a small chuckle.
She just whimpered pathetically. “This is what sin looks like, Captain Rogers, depriving your favourite recruit of her one true love” she told him in a very upset voice.
“I promise you Alex, I will personally see to it that we have coco pops by next Thursday” the mascot of truth and justice swore.
“And if you forget?” she pressed clearly still upset.
“I’ll take you out for breakfast” he supplied.
This instantly brought a smile to her face.
“Debbie’s Diner?” she asked.
“Debbie’s Diner” he nodded as she squealed.
“Steve, you are the best” she said looking infinitively happier than what she was thirty seconds ago.
“Well, I try Alex. There’s some sandwiches from that deli you like in the fridge though. Help yourself.” Steve said before turning around as if to look for someone.
As Alex pulled out her sandwiches Steve apparently found whatever he was looking for.
“Buck, eat something will you” he said before turning to walk out of the kitchen.
“He’s with you?” she asked suddenly freezing in her spot while he Steve didn’t notice.
“Yeah, we went for a run in Central Park this morning” he said before rounding out of the kitchen.
Unaware that he was already past the wall that obscured her view of him, so that he could see her, she scrambled to get her sandwiches, milk and breakfast muffin, quickly turning only to see a smirking Bucky Barnes watching her with great amusement.
“Hi” she squeaked.
“Hey Alex” he said casually, still clearly amused.
How dare he be so casual when Alex was freaking out.
“Hi” she said again, causing his mouth to tug up a fraction more.
Looking at her breakfast choice his brows furrowed slightly.
“No coco pops?” he asked.
“We’re out” she said dumbly, still having no idea how to approach the situation.
“Bet that didn’t sit well with you” he smiled leaning on the wall on one leg.
Why did she find that so attractive? It was not good.
“No, but it’s okay. Steve said he’d get me some” she answered as short as she could.
“Did he now?” he asked, an odd sort of glint in his eyes.
“Yes…” she said slowly.
“Good man” he said.
“Yeah, anyways, I am going to go eat” Alex said quickly moving to the dining table before taking a seat, at the head as per usual before tearing into her muffin as quickly as possible. After all, if Bucky was gonna make breakfast and eat at the table too, she wanted to get the hell out of there as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, this plan did not work out.
“So, Alex” Bucky began as if about to start an interrogation. “Sleep well?” he asked with a smirk.
“Mmhm” she answered with a slight squeak in her voice.
“Last night tire you out?” Bucky asked. “I could help you build up some endurance, if you’d like?” he added as an afterthought.
“I- uh, no. I’m probably gonna train with Steve and Natasha” Alex said before pausing to skull her milk as quickly as possible.
For fucks sake. She still had a sandwich to go through. How convenient.
“You sure?” he asked.
“Yep” she said.
“Hey Alex?” he asked.
“Hmm?” she hummed looking absolutely anywhere but him.
“Wanna have sex again?” he asked so casually it made her eyes instantly snap to his in a split second.
“Um, I’m good and I have a lot of stuff to do today and yeah” she said lamely while scarfing down her sandwich as quickly as humanly possible.
“Cos I’d like to have sex with you again” he said as her face began heating up, a very slight pink hue placing themselves on her cheekbones.
“I- you would?” she asked before she could stop the words coming out.
“Oh yeah. You were a lot of fun. I’d like to see what other fun things we could do with each other” Bucky said taking a bite out of his apple.
Even his apple eating was hot. Just great.
“I’m sure there’s no limit to the fun we could have but I gotta go do some…cleaning” she said thinking of the first thing that came to her head while bolting to her room, sandwich and plate forgotten.
Blissfully unaware that he was following her, her breathing returned to normal, not that she was aware it was abnormal in the first place what with her mind so consumed with thoughts of Bucky and his beautiful blue eyes and his gorgeous chocolate locks and his ridiculously firm looking (and feeling, Alex remembered) muscles and his perfect hands and his fingers (more specifically what he could do with those fingers) and don’t even get her started on his more adult behavior that seemed to creep its way into her mind every time she so much as thought of him.
She entered her room, still oblivious to who was trailing her and sighed before staring out of her window.
“Spotless” his voice rumbled from right behind her.
Jumping before she turned, she asked in a sort of outrage “What are you doing here?”.
“Well I was gonna help you clean, but your room is spotless” he said strolling around the place casually.
Again. “Screw him and his casually” she thought.
“I meant rearrange stuff” Alex covered.
“Need some muscle?” he asked amusedly.
“Sam’s free, he agreed to help me” she said far too quickly.
“He’s doing an extended training session with Steve and Rhodey” Bucky smirked.
“Oh” was all Alex managed.
“You know, you are adorable when you’re so flustered” he smiled.
Stupid cute impish grin.
“I’m not flust-” she stopped when his hands started rubbing small circles into her hand that he’d apparently taken in the last five seconds.
“No?” he asked.
Oh, how she hated him in this moment.
“No” she said defiantly before snatching hand away, unsuccessfully, as he simply tugged on her hand sending her crashing into his chest, while his arms locked around her, holding her firmly in place.
Brilliant. Just brilliant.
“Oh dear" she muttered.
“You don’t seem unflustered” he observed.
“Bucky, I’ve got” she began but got cut off again.
“Cleaning, re-arranging to be specific, I know” he smiled.
He really did think she was adorable.
“But here’s the thing doll, I want you in bed again, you’ve got loads of time to rearrange furniture” he said.
“Wha- well- I can’t, you know, right now, I’ve got-” she stuttered before he kissed her, completely cutting of whatever possible argument she had prepared.
And she was lost. Lost in his kiss, his smell, the feel of his chest under her hands.
“We’ve got 15 minutes before everyone comes up for lunch, I wanna test just how many times you scream for me in that time” he murmured in her ear causing a shiver to rush down her spine.
“Okay” she squeaked as he dragged her to his bed.
This would be interesting at the very least.
